New Patient Registration
Download our Practice Leaflet
All patients are required to visit the Surgery to complete the registration process and must be residing within our practice area. Please see the above tab for the Practice Area. To ensure that we continue to provide the highest and safest levels of care to the Patients within the locality we are only able to register new patients that are living within our published Patient Registration Boundary. We are unable to make any exceptions to this policy.
The receptionist will provide you with a registration pack and take you through the registration procedure. Using the equipment provided you will need to take your blood pressure, measure your height and weight, complete the forms, retake your blood pressure, then return the completed pack to the receptionist for processing. Any regular medication, including contraception will need to be recorded on the form.
The practice would prefer it if all new patients applying to register with us provide evidence of their residency in our practice area. Patients already residing in the UK are asked to provide current proof of address e.g. a copy of a utility bill, a solicitor's letter or rent book, dated within the last three months as this information will help us to ensure accuracy of recording personal details.
New patients arriving from overseas are requested to provide similar proof of residency plus their passport and any relevant visas.
If you have been issued with an NHS medical card you will also need to bring this with you when registering. If you have been registered previously with a doctor in the UK, you will need to know their name and address to complete your registration.
Please ensure that you book a routine appointment with a doctor to obtain your first prescription from the surgery.
We will not refuse an application for registration on the basis of the applicant's race, gender, age, sexual orientation, social class, religion, appearance, disability or medical condition. We will however refuse applications made by those living outside our practice area.
